Most people sided with Eleanor Roosevelt but as Subtle Knife said she really wasn't a "minor" figure in American history.

Okay. I can see it. I guess I never paid that much attention to Mamie.

EG: Poor Mamie - not many people did - she was a good army wife!

Sorry, she didn't really feature in my American History classes.

SK: She was a Republican President's wife so she didn't do the limelight thing - left that to those damned Democrats. lol. Saturday Night Live was very cruel to her. Each week on the news Chevy Chase would announce: Mamie Eisenhower forgotten but not dead!

Did I say Eleanor Roosevelt??..I meant Mamie Eisenhower...what do I win?

I have heard her name before, but it didn't stick as much as Ladybird Johnson's, Jackie O. and of course dear Eleanor. Here she is in one of my posts.

(I just remembered I never finished my "A Right A Day" series!)
